The May 9, 2018, Utilities and Corporate Services Committee meeting included:

Update on Upstream Bow River Flood Mitigation

Administration presented a report on the status of the recommendations of the Bow River Working Group (BRWG) and identified opportunities to move forward more urgently on upstream flood mitigation on the Bow River.

Committee recommended that Council:

Send a letter to the Province requesting:

  • The Province reconvene the Bow River Working Group with a renewed governance framework as soon as possible;

  • All projects in The City’s 2017 Alberta Community Resilience Program application be approved and funded as submitted; and

  • The Province work with Administration to develop a proposed scope of work for a bi-lateral Task Force to address The City’s flood mitigation, policy, and watershed management issues.

That Council hold a strategic meeting with respect to integrated watershed management and the resiliency plan, no later than the fall of 2018.

The Committee approved the recommendations.
